  1. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 1)
    I recently had a local freelance mechanic change my radiator in my 98 LE 6 cyl 3.0, he only put 1 gallon of coolant because I bought the coolant and misunderstood I needed to buy 4 gallons, I've tried to add the additional gallons but it's filled up, I've burped it with the heater at full blast...

    Is it possible to replace manual seats in '01 Sienna with power seats? Does the entire seat need to be replaced, along with seat tracks? Or just add power mechanism and electrical? Since we're not 'handy', ideas on what type of mechanic (other than Dealer) best to do the job? Read elsewhere...

    I am ready to replace both left and right control arms on the front suspension of my 2013 Sienna. This is necessary as the rubber bushings are deteriorating and allow the control arm to move and make loud popping noises. This morning I looked over the situation for removing the old arms and all...

    I noticed that my rear defroster and side mirror heater are not working. I believe it is due to a blown fuse, Fuse 29. To test this theory, I need to access Fuse 29 but I don't know how to access it because it is under the clear plastic cover (refer to top attached picture). Does anyone know...

    Hello, all. It's Trevor. Here's something interesting...over the weekend I was searching online for auto parts. Specifically, a set of front shocks and struts for a fwd Sienna. Now, to my surprise, I stumbled upon what appears to be a rather affordable set of Sensen struts :) . Here's the url...

    My front tires are wearing on the outside edges. Brought in to NTB to see if it's adjustable without buying aftermarket camber kits. They said to replace control arms (also front lower suspension, tire protection, blah, blach...) which would cost me arout $1800ish and no need to adjust camber...

    I lost my smartkey fob for my 2012 Sienna XLE yesterday (still have the manual "valet" key attached to my keychain, though, and I have a separate dealer installed remote start fob), and my wife has her full set as well. I just wanted to ask on here before I approach the dealer: 1. Do I have to...

    I replaced the PCV valve on my 136k mi 2000 Sienna CE today. I've attached a few pics. I used an old paint roller extension pole, (see 1st pic) like you use to paint ceilings in a house to make a hood prop that I can move to the side I'm not working on. Plus it holds the hood open wider for...

    We just bought a new 2015 Sienna XLE AWD and while the sales guy was driving it to deliver it to us, the windshield picked up a small rock chip. It is very low on the driver's side, so not visible from inside the car. (see attached photo) Dealer is willing to replace the windshield, but I was...

    I'm not a fan of the current DRL (daytime running lights) and was wondering what others have done to replace them? I was considered LEDs, but don't really want to deal with resistors and such...so was wondering if there's an 'in-built' solution or something that takes the current DRL and makes...

    I scratched my rear bumper yesterday at IKEA (stupid concrete post that I didn't notice) and the corner is all scratched up although not dented. I found a rear bumper cover on craigslist for a decent price and thinking of getting it but I'm not sure how much trouble it is to replace the cover...

    I noticed my USB port cover door was broken during my delivery inspection, I have a work order to get it repaired. It looks like it would be susceptible to breaking off again, is it worth replacing? FYI, it was set in place to look like it was fine and when I touched it the thing fell off as...

    My LE has always felt mushy to me and I would love some more steering control (less "floaty"). I have read the various postings about replacing springs and using the stiffer SE springs. Since I am planning to do front struts myself in a few weeks, it wouldn't be a big effort to swap in the SE...

    We had a 2000 Toyota Sienna XLE we bought used, had it for 7 years no major issues, towed our camper and finally traded it in. We replaced it with a 2007 Sienna XLE and a year later we just replaced the transmission for $4000. I told the salesperson we needed the XLE because we towed a camper...
